Simple. Strong. Elegant.
Slate is a versatile material, and because of its durability, can be used in counters, floors, walls, fireplaces, roofs, and more.
Slate is non-porous. This means that it cleans up easily and does not harbor bacteria. It also doesn’t absorb liquids, so juice, tomato products, oils, cleaners, etc., won’t stain it since they can’t penetrate the surface.
While it may be incredibly durable, slate does have tendency to crack under heavy impact.

Dust your slate regularly, as dust and grit can get impacted into the surface. Clean with a damp cloth and a pH-neutral stone cleaner. Never use abrasive cleaners on your slate surfaces.
Use trivets, cutting boards, rugs, runners, etc, to protect your slate surfaces from getting scratched and damaged in high use areas.
Slate is a porous material, so it is important to seal yours annually to keep it safe and to enhance its natural beauty.
